SPLC remembers student journalism advocate





Thomas E. Rolnicki, a longtime friend of the Student Press Law Center and a mentor to many of today’s scholastic journalism leaders, passed away on December 20, 2009, at the age of 60.

In a gesture of exceptional kindness and generosity, Tom’s family designated the Student Press Law Center as the charity to receive donations in his memory.

We warmly thank Tom’s sister, Catherine Molstad, and Tom’s entire family — including his extended “journalism family” — for thinking of the needs of the SPLC during their moment of deepest loss.
